Research Interests

We are interested in developing computational methods to analyze large biological (e.g. genomics, proteomics) datasets. We apply techniques from machine learning, graph theory, statistics etc, and currently our research focuses on the following subfields of molecular biology:

Post-transcriptional Regulation

(RNA-binding proteins, microRNAs, lncRNAs)

Cancer Biology

(subtyping, driver genes)
